i perceive

i perceive
therefore i am

our lives
throw off energy
like suns

& suns throw off
energy like
universes

all growing
old
& dark

fear also
dissipates

yet we know

… how can we
know? …

energy can
not be
created––

not be
destroyed

light is
eternal––

a thought, a
wish, a dream

has breathless
being
forever

& being is
indestructible––

a great
impossible factuality!
like
goodness or
gods or angels
in our
lives

we undying
imaginings
capable of
love
